hOurworld Mobile Time Banking We believe in Open Innovation! We implement the best ideas of our members and coordinators. This broad based co-production model of networking and development affords us all the best tools for sustaining our local communities!

We believe in removing ALL the barriers to time banking that we can. Access to the hOurworld platform is FREE. It is easy for new members to join and learn, and easy for coordinators to manage and report on their members and activity.

We believe in supporting local diversity while maintaining a central cooperative organization to provide accessible support, training, and communications. We are documenting and teaching these models.

We believe that every member have control over their own privacy and content. We operate on private secure servers and HIPPA compliant data centers where all information is encrypted before going out on the internet.

We believe that time banking is one spoke in a wheel of Movements Moving Together. We foster local community organizations drawing together to create powerful local economies as they integrate CSA, Food Co-op, Buy Local, Transition Town, BALLE, CAP and others. The opportunities are endless!

All the Best from hOurworld

Dear Future Member,
Thank you for applying to become a member of Valley Time Trade!
  The final step to activate your membership is to attend an orientation.

Currently scheduled:

RSVP is not necessary, but please show up on time. Orientations typically take between 1 and 1.5 hours.
Please bring a laptop if you can, as we will be learning how to use the time trading software.

If you'd like to be informed of cancellations or have questions, please email:

We will be posting more 2020 orientation dates soon--including possibly some via Zoom.

Please check the calendar on the Valley Time Trade website for updates!

Your application will remain on the website for 6 months. After that time, if you still want to become a member, you will need to re-apply. Put one of these orientation dates on your calendar today so you can start trading!

The Valley Time Trade Team
